Program Announcements

The latest announcements from OMS CS and your advising team.

Hello OMSCS Students,

We hope everyone is having a great semester!

This is a reminder that the deadline to withdraw from a Fall 2017 course is Saturday, October 28 at 4:00pm ET.  **Please note that this deadline falls on a weekend.  The Georgia Tech campus, in addition to the OMSCS advising office, will NOT be open on the weekend.  Therefore, if you know you will be withdrawing, we strongly recommend that you check for any holds and/or withdraw before Saturday, October 28, if possible, to avoid any potential issues.**

Once you withdraw from a course(s), you will have a “W” on your transcript.  Please review the information included in the original email we sent on September 1 (below) for more information and for a list of FAQs.

We will send one final reminder as the October 28 deadline approaches.

Foundational Requirement

Please check which of the following scenarios applies to you regarding the completion of your foundational requirement:

1.  For students whose foundational requirement deadline was the end of the Summer 2017 term (or earlier):

If you were due to complete your foundational requirement by the end of the Summer 2017 term (or earlier), and you have not yet completed it, you will be restricted from registering for any course that is not a foundational course.

**Please note that this is a different process than what was used in previous terms.  You will NOT have a hold placed on your account, so there is nothing you need to do regarding this.**

Once you successfully complete your foundational requirement, you will be able to register for non-foundational courses.

2.  If you matriculated Spring 2017, you have until the end of the Fall 2017 term to complete your foundational requirement.

Please note the information included above in Scenario #1, as this most likely will be the same process used for students who matriculated Spring 2017 who will not complete their foundational requirement by the end of the Fall 2017 term.

We will send more information for this group of students during the Spring 2018 term, so there is no need to contact our office before then if you will not be able to complete your requirement by the end of the Fall 2017 term.

3.  If you matriculated Fall 2017, you have until the end of the Summer 2018 term to complete your foundational requirement.

Please note the information included above in Scenario #1, as this most likely will be the same process used for students who matriculated Fall 2017 who will not complete their foundational requirement by the end of the Summer 2018 term.

Please be sure to plan your Spring 2018 and Summer 2018 schedules accordingly so that you can meet your foundational requirement by your designated deadline.

If you still have additional questions after reading this information, please email us at oms-advising@cc.gatech.edu.  Please be sure to include your full name and nine-digit GTID number (90X-XX-XXXX) in every email.

Have a great day!
